I have memories of my dad having a beehive when I was very little. He would smoke a cigarette to “calm” the bees down (or was that an excuse).
I since wanted to get into beekeeping, though never imagined one day I would look after over 200 colonies of honeybees! Oh well, I am still enjoying it very much and I have become a large “employer” with over 10,000,000 very hard-working creatures depending on our family looking after them and helping them in the current non-ideal environment we have created.
Artisan Trail activities at Bee Friends include
The Bee Farm
This year we are opening our main premises as a Bee Farm: We would like to show the equipment we use to extract raw honey, the different types of beehives and components we use, and of course, it would not be a proper visit without looking at live bees very closely and in complete safety.
So little but so important. They are not here to sting us they are here with a very important mission and if they were to disappear, we would be in big trouble!Visit Website
